It was great getting to visit with all the members at the September meeting. I also enjoyed seeing all the new members along with their families. Our Local is continually growing in record numbers. If you haven’t made plans to attend the December meeting, make plans now.
There is always knowledge to gain by attending our regular meetings, and it gives you a chance to become more actively involved.
Work is still very slow in my jurisdiction, but I am still diligently working to improve this situation. I wish I had a more positive outlook, but presently all the work is in the Northeast.
I would like to take the time to recognize the amazing job that Jesse Johnson did on restructuring our Local 798 web page. Hopefully, our Membership will have an easier time keeping up with the job lists, the Action Network, and current events.
I would also like to continue to remind every member how important staying active on our Action Network is for our future. This is a fantastic way for our voices to be heard, and our way of life be recognized and valued. The success of our great Local depends on active involvement from ALL of our membership.
In closing, please remember, I am here to serve you. Please feel free to call with any questions or concerns. If you cannot reach me on the office phone, then call my cell number, 918-991-5341. God bless this great Local, and God bless each one of you.
